You can pin this kill on me, since it was a beastly double deterrence at the end that kept things going for just long enough. We sure packed in a lot of failure this week, managing to suffer a series of cruel 1% wipes before finally pushing through for the kill. But it didn't crush our spirits, and we certainly aren't dreading the next fight. With any luck we'll take out Gruul before things get too heavy!
See if you can guess how many of my dead comrades are yelling "It's not my fault?" on Mumble?
Another instance cleared! Nothing special here, but Foundry is actually a lot of fun. This has been right up there with Ulduar and the original Naxxramas 40-man for me in terms of exciting encounters, cool scenery, and interesting mechanics. We actually got Blackhand into the final phase very quickly, but it still took us a few more pulls to even out our strategy in phase two. It will be interesting to see how this fight shapes up in Mythic. Looking forward to it!
We sure put ourselves through hell on this fight. Early on we picked a more difficult strategy and stuck with it, and during our progression on it we churned through five or six raiders, saw one of our healers transfer off the server in the middle of the night after a 0.1% wipe, and had a couple of the worst raid nights I've ever seen. In the end, though, we managed a fairly clean kill and emerged with a better idea of who really belongs on our roster.
All of that pales in comparison to what we really overcame, though: Dolson death threats.
